Wordless Wednesday--Two Hours in a Beauty Salon



My Mother-in-law gave me a gift certificate to her salon because a few scraggly gray hairs popped up over the summer. The kids noticed.

"Mom, you've got GRAY hairs!" they announced on one beautiful sunny day. You'll note that they added an "s" to that sentence.

I'm no longer a dye virgin. Today, I spent two hours at the Lush salon. I had no idea a shampoo could feel so good. The last time I was shampoo'd by someone was on my wedding day (and no, it wasn't the hubby).

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

I gave up trying to fight the grey hair. Looks like the treatment worked for you.

Happy WW!

Looks wonderful! I am torn between the desire for cute hair again or this long bunch of trouble which I've been growing out for over two years (sigh). Men have it so easy!

Va va va voom! Isn't it amazing what a little pampering at the salon will do! You look awesome! (My gray hairs just took the plunge the other day!)

Thanks for all the compliments ladies. Now I just have to figure out how to fund my new addiction to keep this going!

Karen! You look fantastic!! :-) The new "do" makes you look at least a decade younger.

Looks awesome, Karen!

I gave up the dye thing several years ago. Now I go with the natural silver frosted look.

You look good, Karen! Much more modern style! :)

I love to have my hair styled by professionals rather than some hair cuttery places. But, unfortunately, the real hassle is not the money, but trying to do with the SAME style yourself onwards!

My hair ALWAYS looks different the next time I wash and try to style the same way that the stylist did. UGH.

You look great. I just gave in myself to coloring the gray and I'm so happy I did. Now the outside matches how I feel inside. As far as funding it, remember the Loreal slogan --You're worth it!

You look gorgeous!!!

When my kids point out that I have a gray hair, I always tell them it's their fault. ;-)

Whoa Karen! No more frizz! Ya' look great! You see the power of hair straighteners. Buy a good one and you can keep your addiction going.
